Air Traffic Control Strikes in France

Latest Update: 8th April 10:08

As you may have read or heard in the media, unions representing Air Traffic Control workers in France have announced the possibility of strike action over the next few days. 

Please be assured that we are making every effort to ensure that your Thomas Cook Airlines flight departs on time to minimise the delay to the start of your holiday. Wherever possible, we have planned alternative routes for our flights but this might still mean there are some  delays. 

All our flights will operate as planned, and your checking-in and boarding onto the aircraft will continue as normal.  If we experience any prolonged delays, either before or after boarding, we will keep you up to date.

Please note - industrial action has been planned by French air-traffic controllers belonging to the SNCTA union - controllers have said they will strike on nine days between Wednesday and 2 May, starting with a 48-hour stoppage.



Latest Update: 20th March 08:45

Thomas Cook continues  to monitor the situation in Tunisia, working in close collaboration with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

We do not offer holidays to Tunis where the incident occurred, and the FCO does not have any restrictions in place for travel to the resorts that feature in Thomas Cook's programme at this time.  Our holiday and flight programmes continues to operate as normal and normal booking conditions apply.

The safety and wellbeing of Thomas Cook customers and staff is our priority, and we would never knowingly offer holidays in destinations where we felt their safety might be compromised.  Our experienced teams on the ground have confirmed that holidaymakers are continuing to enjoy their holidays in the resort areas of the country.

Our customers' welfare remains our primary concern, and we will continue to liaise with our experienced overseas team and the FCO and update this page on any changes in advice as appropriate.
